Toronto: Cheap copper cookware at Homesense

andreas | Dec 13, 200711:59 AM     1

I normally hate Malls but recently my wife insisted that I had to come and take a look at something she's seen on one of her shopping expeditions. Homesense is selling seconds of Marco Pierre White branded copper cookware at extremely low prices.

A 24 cm chef's pan is $49.00, a 24 cm frying pan $39.00. Yes, the copper is only 1.5mm thick and the lining is stainless steel rather than tin but the pans are well made by BEKA (a German company I believe) and solid. Handles are black cast iron with a non slip texture and riveted on.

I picked up a chef's pan, a frying pan and a saucier for just over $100.00 and they're all working just fine. I made a mushroom risotto in the chef's pan last night which worked out extremely well. Heat reaction is almost instant and the pans are heavy and solid on the stove.

No idea of how many they have left but if you're in the neighbourhood this might be worth taking a look at.

I still covet a 2.5 mm sauté pan hand riveted by a geriatric Frenchman but until the time comes that I can afford one these are decent substitutes.
